[NU048] Correlation between ANTARES high-energy neutrinos and ultra high-energy cosmic rays detected by the Pierre Auger Observatory

Primary authors


A search for angular correlations between high-energy neutrinos detected by ANTARES and the highest energy cosmic ray events measured by the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Telescope Array experiments is presented. The statistic analysis, based on a likelihood-ratio test, is constructed from the angle between the directions of the neutrino events and the cosmic rays. To evaluate the significance of any correlation we used Monte Carlo simulations of randomly generated UHECR directions and comparing with data. The search has been applied to the nine-years ANTARES all-flavour point-source sample.
